2003-P 25C Arkansas MS67 Certification #08785535, PCGS #14022

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 2003 Arkansas Quarter design was the twenty fifth design issued in the State Quarters program. There were 9,320 different designs submitted for review and finally, the Dortha Scott design was chosen. 

The obverse of the coin still had the same George Washington modern design used since 1999. The reverse had the inscriptions "Arkansas 1836, 2003" and "E Pluribus Unum." The design itself had a large diamond in the middle of the scene. Underneath the diamond is a mallard flying above some trees and over a lake.

Most 2003-P Arkansas Quarters came well struck. Only in MS67 condition or higher are they scarce. In MS68 condition or higher they are very difficult to find and expect to pay a significant premium in this condition or higher.
